The past week has got me consuming as much content as I can. Sometimes it makes me feel so overwhelmed. Other times I feel that I am no longer able to appreciate what I am reading. But I have chosen to just keep at it to make sure that the habit of deliberate learning is imprinted in me. I just need to balance it so as not to over do and get burnt out by reading too much.
What I want to do now is to learn how to learn better. I have cast a wide net by simply reading but I do know that at some point I have to work on retaining information, analysing this knowledge and having my own insights about the stuff that I read. I would like to be able to share my thoughts in a succinct, simple and concise manner. I believe that it is only when I am able to articulate it clearly in my own words and apply it in the things I am doing or thinking that I can say that I have truly gained an understanding of the topic.
But for now I will just keep reading, figuring out how best I learn in a state of constant content consumption. I am also curious which topics will hold my attention and so I can veer more toward that. I am keen on discovering how one interest could lead to another as I cobble together a framework of learning that works for me. There are many out there but I have yet to find one that I can make my own, perhaps with a few tiny tweaks.
